ABSTRACT
The aim of the article was to show current trends and perspectives in spatial management and development in terms of a gender characteristics observed as an element of social cohesion. In recent years, the rise of gender trends in space management and planning processes were observed, creating a new tool of social design and the new way of create a cityscape. Spatial design and development of city public areas were analysed. Research methods were based on qualitative interviews with public which use the space and included comparative analysies of those case studies. The presented case studies of investments and public spaces management included allotment gardens, urban community gardens, and urban therapeutic gardens. The site inventory was based on semiotic mapping.The analysed features of design process were: making joint decisions, cooperation, producing community, acting with empathy, focusing on multiple details, respect for the tradition and ecology. The research showed the impact of changes in experts’ paradigm on the participatory democracy and spatial management processes in Poland. The design process was associated with a higher participation of women. Multiple solutions applied in spatial economy and landscape architecture nowadays may be subordinated to the “feminine model” of spatial development. Presented results showed that proactive design and space management accurately responds to the needs of residents. In conclusion, "feminine" management model may cause important changes in experts’ priorities. The partnership built among designers, investors and future users usually gives better results in the project development. The feminine model of spatial management and development contributed to social cohesion and equality, improving the quality of the city life.
